Last Monday, 33 Craigburn students participated in the Southern Heights District Sapsasa Athletics Carnival at SA Athletics Stadium. They competed against students from 15 schools within our district to gain selection for the State Athletics Championship. Events throughout the day included 100m, 200m, 800m, shot put, discus, long jump and high jump. All students are to be congratulated on their efforts and positive display of sportsmanship. Thank you to some of our Yr 6/7 girls who were our marshalling officials recording the photo finishes for the track events. Special thanks to the parents Rebecca, Liann and Satima who assisted with supervision of students on the day. A very successful year with 11 students in track event finals and 23 top 4 place finishes recorded for Craigburn.
Several of our students will now go on to represent Southern Heights and compete in the Sapsasa State Athletics Metropolitan Championship in Week 10 of this term.
